The VL38 table, wall and floor lamp: The lamp from Radiohuset makes a comeback
Press release, 26 May 2016
In September 2016, Louis Poulsen will be relaunching the lamp that was originally designed specifically for the Radiohuset building in Copenhagen. The new model will be launched under the name of VL38 Table Lamp, and Louis Poulsen will be introducing it as part of a series that also features VL38 wall and floor lamps.
Vilhelm Lauritzen, one of the most prominent architects of the modernist and functionalist movements, designed the Radiohuset building and he also created all the light fittings for the project in partnership with Louis Poulsen. The VL38 Table Lamp was originally used in the radio studios in the building.
The VL38 family is being launched in its original design, where the lamp head is organically shaped, painted white and obliquely angled. The arms of the light fittings are made of brass, and all the lamps have been fitted with LED light sources to accommodate contemporary advances in light technology and energy efficiency.
